No Price Marketing Properties marketed under a no-price strategy will attract between 3-4 times the number of potential buyers, offer premium price opportunities and have a higher rate of success within a shorter time frame. Surprisingly, the price factor is often very low on a prospective buyer’s list of priorities.

Auction -

Involves an intensive, high profile, structured campaign which ensures maximum market coverage


Signals to the market that the vendor is serious about selling and that buyers need to view the property with some urgency because it could be sold even before auction


Prior to Auction Day buyers must have all their conditions satisfied to be in a cash position to bid. Your sales consultant will work hard to ensure as many prospective purchasers as possible are in this position


Vendor can evaluate market feedback prior to setting a reserve price


The open bidding situation on the day gives confidence to all attending and promotes competition – buyer against buyer

Tender -

Very similar strategy to Auction and employs the same high profile, no-price approach, within a definite time frame


With no open bidding, tenders are delivered in sealed envelopes which the vendor can decide to accept, reject or negotiate with any party depending on the terms and conditions


It is sometimes possible to include conditional offers in a tender process


Tender suits some circumstances more than others, and can be a successful strategy

Marketing with a Price Fixed price marketing gives buyers the flexibility to make conditional offers. Therefore setting a realistic asking price is crucial and will be determined by you in conjunction with your sales consultant, having taken into account some or all of the following: -

Comparable sales in your local area


Current competition


Current market conditions


Special features of the property


Your circumstances

Nurse Maude and Holmwood working together

It’s a big job but we are more than up to it 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks of the year Harcourts Holmwood is on the road across Canterbury. We are, quite literally, behind Nurse Maude all the way on the back of their cars, so wherever they go, we go.

So far we’ve clocked up more than 10 million kilometres with Nurse Maude and still counting. Caring for the people of Canterbury is a big job – but together we are more than up to it. It’s what community is all about. Fendalton
